Sim Challenge

2017 Sim Challenge – A Med Event

Teams for the 2017 Sim Challenge have been selected.

In life or death situations, the practice of medicine is never a game.  But preparing for it can be!  Be a part of AMSA’s Sim Challenge at AMSA’s Annual Convention and Exposition.  On Friday & Saturday, February 24 & 25, teams will compete in a series of simulated clinical scenarios requiring medical knowledge, clinical skills, teamwork, and communication.  In each round, teams will be presented with a clinical case.  Each team will have ~15 minutes to evaluate, discuss, and present their findings.  A panel of judges will determine the winner for each round.  Eight teams, seven elimination rounds.  One team victorious.

The winning team will receive  $1000 & have the opportunity to compete in the European simulation competition June 14-16, 2017 in Paris, France.*
